Subject:  Get children to love brushing
Onece they are older, get children to enjoy brushing their own teeth. If they are allowed to do so independently, that itself is a great boost to their morale.

However, till they are able to do so properly, the right thing would be to continue doeijng so yourself, while at the same time, giving them some time to do so independently. This is quite important to get them to see this actibity as enjoyable, rather than as a pain or a chore.

No, I dont strictly restrict my children from sweets. I just ensure that they brush their teeth twice a day regularly and go for dentist check ups at least once a year if not every six months

My elder son constantly cried when he was teething and also developed fever. My daughter though passed through her teething stage with minimum discomfort. Each child develops differently and should be treated accordingly.

RE:Thumb sucking
Hi there please do not think so much and just visit a chemist and ask for a liquid solution as there is a solution which needs to be applied on the kids thumb so as he tries to suck it there would be bitter taste and by this he will not suck it again.... - Anushree [View Message]
